Creating or updating of Geronimo Deployment Plans has always been a tedious and erroneous task. As evident from the user mailing list, first time users (and sometimes even advanced users) have always had some issue or the other when it comes to correctly creating Geronimo deployment plans.

I have always wished that Geronimo Development Tools (like Geronimo Eclipse Plug-in) provide some facility for auto creating or updating the Geronimo deployment plans. I have created a wiki page summarizing my proposal:
http://cwiki.apache.org/GMOxPMGT/geronimo-deployment-plans-how-to-simplify-creation-or-updation.html

If this is something of use for you as a user/developer, it would be valuable if you can take a moment and provide your feedback/comment as a reply to this mail. Your feedback/comment would help determine the needs of User community and would better convince the dev-community into taking this up.

Also if you have any new proposals please post it on the above wiki page.
